Sunday Confessions 5-29-16

The United States of Becky

I confess: As Shawn and I have transitioned into eating healthier, I have found myself questioning him about his bowel movements much more than I ever thought I would. Yes, I have turned into that wife. Probably a good thing I don't have kids, because I would definitely turn into the mom who would grill her kids about their poop.

I confess: I have an appointment with an orthopedist on Tuesday and I am actually looking forward to it. They could tell me to suck it up and "play through the pain" for all I know. But at least then I would know.

I confess: I'm actually going to take a nap as soon as I finish this.

Sunday Confessions 5-22-16

The United States of Becky

I confess: I started watching Scream the TV series brought to us by MTV (remember headbangers ball you guys? And Yo! MTV Raps!) - Anyhoo...yeah, shame...I'm actually enjoying it. I don't really care, so I'm not emotionally invested or on the edge of my seat like with say, Walking Dead, American Horror Story, HIMYM, Friends, and so on. It's just fun and funny.

I confess: I desperately want chocolate cake with vanilla frosting. Yum!

I confess: I'm not actually reading anything right now. I am still listening to Yes, Please!, but I am not reading any books with my eyes.

Some Chatter

Sorry about the humming...I totally forgot I had the laptop cooler fan pad thing still plugged in.

Also, lighting is not great, but what are you going to do. The reason
there is an (ugly) couch cushion behind me is I am also elevating/icing my knee.
Look at me all multitasking.

*We did not finish the ice cream. Got rid of it.

Sunday Confessions 5-15-16

The United States of Becky

I confess: *Christine and I are having a sister date tomorrow: we each picked a movie, we're going to pop popcorn, lay in our pajamas, and veg out and watch movies. Zombie movies scare her, so naturally I picked Planet Terror. Bwa ha ha. 

I confess: I am having a really hard time typing this because the cat is on my lap and her tail keeps brushing the touch pad and I don't move her because I wouldn't want to upset her.

I confess: Only in the past week did I learn that apparently knives of the cooking, steak, etc, variety, and also nonstick cookie sheets should actually not be washed in the dishwasher because apparently it is bad for them and breaks them down quicker. Apparently, A LOT quicker. (Did you guys know this?)

The United States of Becky

I confess: I roll my eyes on instagram a lot when I see anything related to squats. Because I'm sure they are God's gift to fitness, but there is such a thing as life beyond squats.

Ok, I just found this hilarious.

I confess: Same goes for: (Monday groan; Wednesday humpday; Friday yay and so on) because everyone in my life - family, friends, etc. works weekends. Restaurants, pharmacies, airports, retail, over-the-phone-computer-tech-help, factories, farming, home damage repair techs {like if your roof collapses, your basement floods, a tree falls on your porch, etc., which happens A LOT}, nursing, the list goes on....someone in my family or social circle works in every single one of these jobs and every single one of them requires weekend AND holiday hours. So, yeah. It jangles my nerves.

NOTE: Incidentally, this does not actually apply to the bloggers I follow and who follow me regularly (you know who you are) because you don't really complain about Mondays or celebrate Fridays or anything like that. And if you do, it's once in a great while, and that would be perfectly acceptable. 

I confess: Yes, I am adding books to my goodreads profile that I have read before. But only ones I have read more than once.
Updates: That's not true. Lies. The ones I love I read more than once, which is what I meant but didn't write because my brain was not fully awake when I wrote this.

Things I Have Learned From My Body

It might be carpal tunnel, it might be one of the many fun forms
of tendonitis, it might be fallen arches or too many twisted ankles, but eventually,
your body is going to start going from this:

to this:

Exfoliate & Moisturize. 
It actually is important.

Yes, yes I will, thanks. could moisturize me....

Unfortunately, as trite as it is, drinking good 'ole plain water really 
does make a huge difference in how you (I) feel.

Sunday Confessions 5-1-16

The United States of Becky

I confess: I have been super lazy all week. If I was a super hero, my power would be laying around and my name would be Lethargy Girl.

I confess: I have some ideas for blog posts, but I would have to search for several related gifs and I just don't have the motivation at this moment in time.

I confess: I find myself suddenly desperately wanting a Kindle Paperwhite. It's even on  my amazon wish list (which is amazing, I am not very willy-nilly about what I put on there).  But damn, the possibilities.
